4, Whisk milk with a milk former.
5, Pour the milk whisked in step 4 into the cup in step 3!
▼Tips for making it tasty
【If you want to achieve café quality, a sieve is a must item! 】
The finer the matcha, the finer the particles and the easier it is to form lumps.
Please do not omit the sieving process to improve palatability.
Sweetness to taste.
This recipe is slightly less sweet so that the bitterness of the matcha remains.
If you have a sweet tooth, adjust the amount of sugar.
Also, granulated sugar is used for the sugar in this recipe, but you can use wasanbon, kibi sugar, oligosaccharide, or whatever you like.
【And try different kinds of milk. 】
Changing the milk will change the way you perceive the taste and aroma. We recommend Takanashi pasteurized milk!
Often used in cafes, it has less of the aroma characteristic of milk, so the aroma of matcha is clearer.
You can often find it in supermarkets, so please give it a try.
